Oroboros-Team - 2018-12-07




Open positions

Biomedical scientist / Technician

Ensuring the excellent quality of our daily work in the Mitochondrial Research Laboratory your tasks contain:
  • Respirometry measurements with various biological samples as well as measurements of further mitochondrial parameters (ROS production, mt-membrane potential, ATP production, Ca2+) by high-resolution respirometery in combination with fluorescence measurements.
  • Analytical measurements on biological samples: Cell count, protein content, spectrophotometric determination of enzyme activities
  • Application, evaluation and development of protocols - e.g. in the NextGen-O2k project
  • Cell culture and sample preparation, production of buffers, chemicals and media.
  • Quality Control of the O2k-FluoRespirometer
  • Administrative tasks in the laboratory


Your skills:
  • Completed training as a biomedical scientist or similar relevant experience
  • Proficiency in English
  • Pro-active approach
  • Strong organizational and communication skills
  • Attention to detail and careful working method
  • Excellent interpersonal skills
  • Teamwork
  • Flexibility


Postdoctoral researcher

In Oroboros' Mitochondrial Research Laboratory, 24 O2k (48 chambers) with the newest O2k-MultiSensor Modules or the NextGen-O2k configuration are available for research and biomedical applications, providing the basis of high-output in high-resolution respirometry.
Your initial key responsibilities will be:
  • Scientific projects on mitochondrial function, including potential collaboration with partners such as the Medical University of Innsbruck
  • Participation in the research and development of our products, including work on the NextGen-O2k and other prototypes.
Following in-depth training provided by Oroboros, you may also be asked to:
  • Conduct on-site visits to customers
  • Contribute to O2k-Workshops and training courses on our methods and instruments
  • Provide customer support by the OTRS ticket system
Your skills:
  • PhD in biological sciences or closely related field
  • Background in mitochondrial physiology and working experience with the O2k is of benefit
  • Proficiency in English
  • Pro-active approach
  • Strong organizational and communication skills
  • Attention to detail and careful working method
  • Excellent interpersonal skills
  • Teamwork
  • Flexibility


Our offer

We offer a diverse area of responsibility allowing for professional development and growth. The successful candidate will be joining an engaged and friendly team accompanied by a competitive performance-based salary (based on the collective agreement for Angestellte und Lehrlinge in Handelsbetrieben with additional pay according to qualifications).

Oroboros in brief

Oroboros Instruments is a life science company located in Innsbruck. The company’s focus is on mitochondria and cell research. Oroboros distributes the gold standard technology for high-resolution respirometry - HRR – in 49 countries world-wide and is a scientifically oriented organization with emphasis on continuous innovation.
Instrumental development of the existing O2k technology as well as possible applications are the key of Oroboros Instruments’ leadership on the market. The extension of the Oroboros O2k to the O2k-FluoRespirometer (integrating fluorescence measurements) set a new standard and will be continued by the NextGen-O2k. The NextGen-O2k will combine high-resolution respirometry with O2k-Spectrofluorometry (including ratiometric measurements), NADH autofluorescence, O2k-Spectrophotometry (allowing for simultaneous measurement of redox states of the cytochromes aa3, c, and b), and a Q-redox sensor. It will have integrated optical elements beyond the modular options of the presently available Oroboros O2k. Furthermore, by expanding high-resolution respirometry from a two-chamber to a multi-chamber device the research instrument will become a future tool as a medical device.
Innsbruck - the city in the Alps: Tyrol and its capital Innsbruck offer the highest standards of quality of life in Austria, combining the unique alpine surroundings with an excellent infrastructure. High living standards include international schools, a very good health care system, political stability and outdoor sport activities on the doorstep, e.g. skiing, hiking, mountain climbing.
